How Big Is VALORANT? Download Size Revealed

In a world where games seem to be getting absolutely huge in terms of file size (we're looking at you, Warzone), it's a pleasant surprise to see a game command a much smaller portion of the hard drive than we're used to.

VALORANT is one such case, and if you're wondering how big the download size is then we have you covered - and it's good news.

While VALORANT's initial launcher download is less than 100 MB, the game's actual full size comes in at between 4 GB and 5 GB - positively minuscule compared to other shooters.

Part of this is undoubtedly Riot's intention to have VALORANT running on as many PCs as possible, with a fairly reserved art style and effects meaning you don't need a dedicated gaming rig to plant the spike, teleport behind an attacker, or rack up an Ace.
